AGLAONEMA 'Cecilia'

Family

Araceae

Botanical Name

AGLAONEMA 'Cecilia'

Plant Common Name

Aglaonema, Cecilia Chinese Evergreen, Chinese Evergreen

General Description

Valued for their large, handsome evergreen leaves and tough constitution, aglaonemas are among the most familiar shade-loving houseplants. One of the largest of its tribe, the hybrid 'Cecila' features broad, upright, silvery leaves with green veins. Ornamentally insignificant flowers with small white spathes appear sporadically.

Aglaonemas like warmth, humidity, bright shade, and moist, well-drained soil, but will settle for less. They are used as pot plants in houses and public buildings, and as an outdoor shade plant in Hawaii and other tropical climes.
